Helen Shaw proclaims, "Instead of adapting Chekhov’s 1895 play for actors, Celine Song remade it for the video game’s AI-driven avatars. One of the offerings from New York Theatre Workshop’s virtual season, Song’s two-night, nearly six-hour Seagull was head and wings above other experiments in digital theater."
The belief in people coming together and being moved by a shared experience is central to what we love about the theatre. It occurred to us that joining in the preparation and enjoyment of a meal touches on the same emotional impulses – to reach, to connect, to inspire, so we've collected some recipes from our community of artists!
Although we’ve had to pause our business on East 4th Street, many of our Good Neighbors are still fulfilling online and takeout orders. If you’re a member of our local East Village and Lower East Side community, consider placing an order to help our neighbors. We’re eagerly awaiting our return to East 4th Street when we’re able to throw open the doors and welcome everyone back in!
Direct from its run at NYTW this winter, SING STREET is 'Going Up'(town) to the Lyceum Theatre.
We've watched HADESTOWN grow, from the early summer residency at Dartmouth in 2014 through the World Premiere that completely transformed our theatre. Now... Let's welcome HADESTOWN back to New York!
From the NYTW stage to a five-week transfer run at Greenwich House Theater, it's been a privilege to witness the power of theatre to bring us together for a shared experience. This year, Heidi Schreck, Mike Iveson, Rosdely Ciprian and Thursday Williams and director Oliver Butler headed uptown to make their Broadway debuts (!!!). We’re so excited for the show as it goes on tour!
Following its Broadway run this past winter/fall season straight from NYTW, Jeremy O. Harris' SLAVE PLAY will head to the west coast as part of Theatre Group’s 2020 – 2021 season at the Mark Taper Forum.
